Get Your Thinking Caps On....

A friend sent this quiz to my email and I am passing it on to you all this way. The average person only gets 7 correct. This is mainly based on aussie. info, so those of you that are from shores afar are going to have to think harder.


There are 25 questions about things we see every day or have known about all our lives. How many can you get right? These little simple questions are harder than you think...it just shows you how little we pay attention to the commonplace things of life.

Put your thinking caps on. No cheating! No looking around! No getting out of your chair! No using anything on or in your desk or computer! Can you beat 23?? (The average is 7) Write down your answers as you go. Check answers (click on my reply button at the bottom the answers are in there), AFTER completing all the questions.

REMEMBER - NO CHEATING!!! BE HONEST!!! LET'S JUST SEE HOW OBSERVANT YOU REALLY ARE. Here we go!
